A Dutch Tripel? I have my doubts, let’s see…
$3.95 for the 11.2 oz bottle form Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Nasty looking pour – dirty brown Dubbel appearance. Looks like dirty, ditch/dish water. Head is short lived and no lace in the Duvel tulip. Looks drab.
Big sweet Belgian candy notes and a touch of yeast complete the nose. The aroma is the best part of this beer.
Tastes are mild caramel with a little residual sweetness alongside some chewy malts. A little alcohol in the finish, but this drinks well below the advertised 9%.
Not really much of a Tripel in my book, all the way from the appearance to the taste. Way too “muddy” and ill-defined for me and for the style. Disappointing.
